Lines and shapes do make gorgeous patterns!! Especially when combined with an array of great colors!

The children were given the leaf pattern and a vibrant set of poster paints. They chose to paint them mostly colourful. Once that dried up, they tried making various patterns on the leaves using contrasting colours.
 I loved the patterns and the beautiful colours. So vibrant and stunning! They all looked gorgeous!!
Here is a leaf pattern to download, for those who like our pattern :)
I also think that we could try using the same technique on a large flower drawing as well and yes, another a nice painting project for 5 to 8 year olds.

You may download the pattern and try making them in the classroom or at home.

LAST MINUTE SCHOOL PROJECT : Making a model of the Colosseum using cardboard.

Children often come in with last minute projects to complete. Here is one such example. The making of the Colosseum model using cardboard and paints.

Durga Puja and Dussehra

Happy Durga Puja and Dussehra to all!
For all our readers who love madhubani art, here is our Goddess Durga in madhubani style of painting.

As the children delve into the interesting Dussehra and Durga Puja activities, here are some of the activities we enjoyed doing during the festive break.
Easy drawing and coloring/ painting Goddess Durga and Ravana. Making a shield and sword using cardboard.Making bow and arrows using cardboard and paper.Learning to make Rangolis. It was pretty easy to draw 'Ravana' with his ten heads. We first made a large 'U' added ears to it and continued till we counted ten heads. Adding the crown and the details on the face completes the heads. Then make the body and the flames and it is time for some colouring.
Now for some artworks created by 5 to 9 year olds during this session.

Have fun this festive season and enjoy creating!
